Wellness Fair 2002 at LWTC

The Fourth Annual Lake Washington Technical College Wellness Fair, presented by the LWTC Fitness Specialist Program, will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 4, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the East Building.
   Over 60 vendors and booths will feature wellness organizations ranging from chiropractors and massage therapists to information on holistic health care and meditation.
   Keynote speaker, Dr. Peter C. Reike, will be speaking on "Facing Your Challenges" from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. in the LWTC West Building Auditorium (W404).
   Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Reike was the first paraplegic to summit Mt. Rainier.
   He scaled the rugged 14,411- foot mountain using a human-arm-powered tractor called "The SnowPod" that is similar to a very small tank.
   Lake Washington Technical College is located at 11605 132nd Avenue NE in Kirkland and parking is free.
